The Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District (District), whose mission is to reduce reliance on landfills, is accepting applications for its Policy Committee.
Solid waste policy in Hamilton County is managed by a Policy Committee. The Committee consists of four permanent members, one non-voting member, and three other representatives. The District is currently seeking applications for the General Interest Representative. This position, whose term is four years, is responsible for representing the interests of citizens and cannot have a conflict of interest through affiliation with a waste management company or with any entity that is a significant generator of solid waste.
Policy Committee responsibilities include reviewing and providing guidance on programs, reviewing and adjusting funding for these programs, writing and implementing a 15 year solid waste management plan, and making recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners on solid waste management policies and budget. The Committee meets every other month.
If you are interested in volunteering as the General Interest Representative, complete the application by April 13.
